Resident Evil 6: Capcom cites 'technical reasons' for on-disc DLC

Capcom has confirmed that some Resident Evil 6 DLC data is stored on retail copies of the game. (Capcom, PS3, Resident Evil 6, Xbox 360)

Yeah... "technical reasons."
-Mika-  +   780d ago
It is for technical reasons. First off, the extra costumes and colors will be able to be unlocked on Residentevil.net. Second the data on the disc are partial data. Not the full thing. So obviously that stuff wasn't completed or scrapped. Lastly the "no hope" difficulty will be free dlc or unlockable via residentevil.net. You and other users on here need to stop bashing capcom without having the full facts.

In response, Capcom said in a statement this afternoon: "We still have unannounced DLC for RE6 that will be revealed in the coming months"

This is great news. I was hoping that wasn't going to be all the dlc. I hope they add mercenaries reunion and a scenario including Jill. I would buy that in a heartbeat.

The pitchforks are already out, somebody has already lit the torches - you're not going to ruin this mob's night out with something as silly as facts, surely?

HammadTheBeast  +   780d ago
How is it then, that people have unlocked and are using the dlc if it's partial data? Yeah.
Soldierone  +   780d ago
OR it could just be partial data so Capcom doesn't have to pay Sony/MS full price for bandwith use....since you only need to download half of the "DLC" and not all of it.

dude -Mika speaks the truth man. Do you people not know how to read anymore? or is it that you just don't want to accept that truth and keep on the hate train. Well i salute you my friends. Have fun on that long Hate Train Journey.
Snookies12  +   780d ago
LOL! Yes, that's it... Just like their other games that have disc-locked content. I'm sure those were for technical reasons as well.

Of course! Can't you understand Capcom's pure intentions? /S

Technically... they want more money.
KillerPwned  +   780d ago
I don't care what the situation is why cant games just be like last gen or any gen before that and include all the content right from the bat. I get stuff like expansion packs say a hole new story for Borderlands 2. But shit like new costumes for SF4 that shit should already be unlocked when you pay $60 for the game.

This RE6 on disk DLC if its free then why the hell not just include it in the game as an unlockable!?
Heavenly King  +   780d ago
because it will unlock via RE.net. Still why begin bitching for a difficulty mode?
Blankman85  +   780d ago
Well technically, they are greedy.
csreynolds  +   779d ago

'technical reasons'

Translation: "technically, we wanted to milk you for all of your money, and technically we could have made it completely downloadable, but technically it was way easier to put it on the disc and make you buy a 76kb code to unlock it."

Technically, we have to lock parts of the game out so that we can charge you twice for the same content.
MysticStrummer  +   779d ago
Lots of people seem to be ok with paying to play online, which I'm pretty sure is content that's on the disc when you buy it. I don't see why people are surprised and outraged by things like this and Online Passes. A large number of gamers have proven to the gaming industry that they are willing to pay more for things they already bought. The industry will naturally try to think of ways to exploit that for profit, and it makes them more money to put content on the disc and then sell you a code to unlock it.

They are unlockables, except for possible No Hope difficulty which may be free dlc.
vortis  +   780d ago
Well, it'll be free now because Capcom got busted.
amaguli  +   780d ago
Ha, most likely. You think they would have learned after the SFxT fiasco that modders are going to open all their games up for now on.
josephayal  +   780d ago
Looks like I'm done with Capcom
Dovahkiin  +   779d ago
Most sensible comment of yours I've read.
FOXDIE  +   779d ago
lol Already done with them since SF4!
SolidDuck  +   780d ago
defend them all u want, capcom is known for this kind of crap. But who cares RE 6 sucks anyway. in a week there will be a ton of used copies at your local GameStop.
Killman  +   780d ago
'Technical issues' was the same excuse for not making DR2: OTR an add-on for the original DR2. I really hate this company.
Burning_Finger  +   780d ago
I got technical reason not to buy Resident Evil 6 and Other Capcom products in years to come. My Credit Card said F U to Capcom.
CockSplash  +   780d ago
Remember the days when you would complete the game or a difficult challenge to unlock extra costumes? Now the challenge to unlock extras is being able to afford them.
lorcraven  +   780d ago
Funny how these technicalities always manage to screw the customers and allow capcom to squeeze more pennies out of a product.
NotSoSilentBob  +   780d ago
Speak with your wallet and do not buy the game at all.
Soldierone  +   780d ago
Done!
NotSoSilentBob  +   780d ago
Capcom cutting content from a game to resell later!?!?!?!
What a shock/Sarcasm
genius  +   780d ago
crapcom just SHUT UP .
Soldierone  +   780d ago
Umm....didn't they just state "the DLC won't be on the disc" and now we find out it is. I knew they were just trying to play a game and slide by with the same rip off scheme.
Max-Zorin  +   780d ago
Nobody makes their fans blood boil like Capcom.
bubblebeam  +   779d ago
"Nobody makes their **ex-fans blood boil like Capcom."

I don't see why people are defending them. Bunch of idiots. Whether they agree with the bad language some angry (ex) fans are directing at Capcom, surely there is another option than excusing Capcom and defending them for it.

Take a stand. You can still be a fan of Capcom AND disagree with their dirty tactics. They don't need defending. Too many gamers think we owe everything to developers. and should bow before all their efforts. We appreciate them by giving them money (buying their games), so if they aren't showing you the same mutual respect, at least being honest, then let them know.

Just my 2 cents. Peace out.
Max-Zorin  +   779d ago
I don't see why people are defending them either. It's a serious problem when we can no longer earn locked content just by beating any game made by Capcom or any other company that practice the same dirty tactics that we clearly don't like.
Tetsujin  +   779d ago
My top 3 in this order of most hated gaming companies:

Activision (After Bobby Kotiks' comment I refuse to buy anymore of there games)

Square Enix (Until Vs13 comes out I will not buy another game from them)

Capcom (Used only at this point)

No excuses, its UNETHICAL, period. And they know it. The backlash is warranted & justified 1000%!!!!!, nuff said.
PersonMan  +   779d ago
Don't they have to have DLC on the disc? What if you're playing co-op with a friend who is using a DLC skin but you didn't download the DLC... you'd still be able to see your friends DLC skin because it can load off the disc.
Picnic  +   779d ago
I was trying to think of how to defend DLC but my overwhelming feeling is that it's a bit like buying a house from an estate agent and then later having to buy a key to access a secret passage in your own home with the estate agent explaining 'Oh the secret passage? Oh yes that's yours but the key's not included'.

But I can see why they do it. They're just putting something ready on the disc that would otherwise require downloading. Also, in your house you don't tend to need to earn the right to enter your own bathroom or kitchen so it's not like all content is normally immediately accessible in any case. Capcom just want you to earn it in a different way- with money instead of trials.

I have a legitimate question. How come there has never been a class action lawsuit for on disc DLC? It seems to be a legitimate lawsuit waiting to happen to me. I have no law experience to speak from but it seems like they should be sued for considering people have already paid for that product and now they have to pay more.
Tetsujin  +   779d ago
I'm not in any type of law school and I'm not gonna pretend like I know what laws are or how they work (unlike some of the other users on this site) but here's my theory;

Capcom can argue one of 2 things;

1 - We have a ToS in all our games that no one reads that says something like "we can modify and replace at any given time" which they can say "oh we had it planned but to meet deadline we had to wait till later, and charge because we had to modify it outside original planning"

2 - They have a Johnny Cochran-type lawyer
Armyntt  +   779d ago
Lol, they have a Johnny Cochran type lawyer.
ame22  +   779d ago
Lol!
Pizza  +   778d ago
It looks like retail price of $59,99 could only buy a "vanilla" version.

If you want to experience the full game, expect to spend at least $100.
